Abraham Lincoln High School Text

Parents

At Abraham Lincoln High School, we encourage you to take an active role in the education of your child!

We hope the following information will assist you in supporting your student:

Visiting Our School

We welcome all parents and guardians into the school to check on student progress, observe classrooms or meet with teachers. When it is necessary to meet with a teacher, contact the teacher and arrange a mutually agreed-upon time. Teachers may not leave classrooms during instruction. Parents can contact their student’s teachers by calling the main office at 720-423-5000 or via email; staff contact information can be found in our school directory.

Parents are encouraged to attend back to school nights, parent/teacher conferences and other school events!

Checking Grades and Attendance

Parents and guardians should have access to the online Parent Portal to monitor their child’s grades and attendance. Visit the Parent Portal to set up an account; if you have questions or need assistance, call the main office at 720-423-5000 or email our parent liaison, Fernando Guidice, at Fernando_Guidice@dpsk12.org

Reporting Absences

We expect our students to attend school at least 93% of the time. If your child must be absent for all or part of the day for any reason, call the attendance line at 720-423-5033. The Attendance Secretary will also accept a written excuse from the parent on the day the student returns.

Note: Students are responsible for getting and completing all worked missed due to an absence.

Hearing from Lincoln

We communicate with our families in a number of ways, including:

  • The Lancer Connect is sent to families weekly, announcing any important info and dates to remember. Lancer Connect is sent to Families Via email and through text message. Example here -> https://bit.ly/9GCAClassOf2025
  • We use an automated calling system to send recorded messages to students’ homes every day to alert parents to student absences.
  • We use this same system to send recorded messages to students’ homes from time to time.
  • All students have a “Lancer Family Period where teachers will keep students updated with grades, and announcements for school.
  • Information will be provided through our website and  through our Facebook page.

Updating Contact Information

Accurate contact information is needed to contact parents. If contact information changes after registration, contact the school office at 720-423-5000.
